I am grumpy and tired and I want to rant…..

Written by D. Pitney on 8:51 AM

I guess I just woke up on the wrong side of the bed so a little item set me off this morning. I was listening to the news on the radio and heard about an Obama rally in Bristol TN (I think, I was still half asleep). The station ran a piece of an interview with a lady who said something along the lines of the following: “I was in middle school when JFK was elected (Camelot again). I can’t remember another time when I felt so good about the possibility of change”. Just so everyone is clear this in not an exact quote but I am fairly sure it is close.

The specific item that made my blood boil is the whole concept of feeling good. What has happened to logic and reason in making decisions? I am sick and tired of liberals getting a free pass based on idealism versus results. If I tell my boss I am trying as hard as I can and I have the best intentions but I don’t produce I will be fired. However when a liberal says I am trying to help the poor, the children, the elderly, the under privileged, the environment and so on they are judged strictly on intentions not the end results. Why do we continue to let this happen?

As a staunch conservative I truly believe in limited government and especially lower taxes. Never once have I tried to kill a child or an old person nor do I intend too. I believe in conservation just not at the cost of progress. I believe in the power of the individual to succeed and make the right choices. I believe in the power of churches and local organizations to take care of their own (if the federal government would give the power and money back to the local folks and individuals to do that). I do not believe that the government was every intended to or should be in the business of taking care of me or anyone else. The government was put in place to primarily protect freedom by providing national defense (a strong military the one thing liberals think the government shouldn’t do).

We need to run rapidly away from the whole concept of sending our hard earned wages to liberals under the umbrella of helping people. We need to put our foot down to socialized medicine. We need to put our foot down to socialized retirement (social insecurity as I refer to it). We need to put our foot down to socialized welfare. We need to put our foot down to social engineering (homosexual marriages, legalized abortion, etc.). We just need to put our foot down to rampant liberalism. Wake up before we become a completely socialized country where your only freedom is those which the Obamas of the world will allow you to have. Wake up before it’s too late. God Bless America.

    Somehow, it has become the common belief amongst nearly the entire populace that every single problem must be addressed by government.

    "I do not believe that the government was every intended to or should be in the business of taking care of me or anyone else."

    Amen! Social legislation, should not exist.

    while you are on the topic, you can blame FDR for that.
